Art Pepper (1925–1982)


A saxophonist, Art Pepper played briefly with Gus Arnheim but most often played with black groups in downtown Los Angeles. It was during the late 1940s and early 1950s that he became addicted to heroin, and during the 1960s he served a few jail sentences. Pepper's wife wrote his biography, entitled "Straight Life."
